Koster cites AA as providing inspiration in Ultima Online development

Citizen reporter Tinfang notes in his AA blog that Ralph Koster reveals Ancient Anguish influence in the design of Ultima Online – and potentially also World of Warcraft, as Blizzard was praising Ultima Online in turn, before their flagship title was launched.

Koster mentions AA specifically in an interview about the planning and development of Ultima Online. He and other people involved also worked on LegendMUD, which currently averages 8 players a day according to MudStats.
